Sun Tubes
Spend $300 now and SAVE $45 each year... ROI = 15%

Highlights

Bring light into rooms that do not have windows or skylight access. The interior of the 'tube' magnifies the light so that the fixture in the ceiling looks like there is actually a bulb inside. Guests often look for a light switch to turn it off when they leave a bathroom, closet, or laundry area.
